Magical Matagorda Holidays
If you're looking for a family getaway with soft sand, sunshine and warm seas, look no further than Matagorda. This resort on Lanzarote's southern coast has everything a young family needs to have a fun-filled holiday and is a great destination for couples looking for a relaxing break too. Whitewashed villas contrast with a dramatic volcanic landscape topped off with some luscious green hills, and the azure ocean is always nearby. Matagorda holidays offer as much or as little relaxation as you want. Lounge on the beach or explore some volcanic craters and underground lakes; the choice is yours.
Things to do in Matagorda
When your tan is topped up and your tummy is full, there are some exciting and interesting things to do in Matagorda. Take an excursion out to Timanfaya National Park to get an up close view of some volcanic craters and see a side of the island that's a world away from the resorts. The Los Verdes Caves have some impressive illuminated caverns as well as an underground lake.
Holidays to Matagorda are the best possible choice for a stress-free break. The resort is less than ten minutes by car from the airport; you could even walk it if you really wanted to. The whole area is newly developed, so you will have a host of modern facilities right on your doorstep. The beach and a string of cosy bars and restaurants lie at the south of the town, while the supermarkets and a shopping mall are in the centre. Most accommodation lies to the western part of the resort, a five minute walk from both the beach and all amenities.
As well as a number of laid back bars and restaurants to chill out in, a shopping mall that can satisfy any shopaholic's cravings and 365 days of sunshine, Matagorda holidays also have another vital holiday element; a pristine blue flag beach. The resort is situated at the ideal spot for catching a refreshing breeze year round, making windsurfing a popular beach activity.
Although it is considered one of the quieter resorts on this side of Lanzarote, Matagorda is by no means isolated. A beachfront promenade runs all the way from the bustling town of Puerto del Carmen, through Matagorda and on into Playa De Los Pocillos on the other side; so taking an after-dinner stroll to find some buzzing nightclubs only takes ten minutes.
Although a purpose built resort, Matagorda has all the qualities of a chilled out island town. Strict development regulations have been put in place so that there are no high rise buildings and the relaxed Spanish lifestyle is as prominent as ever. There is no better pleasure than enjoying a lazy evening over some tapas and local wine.
